The Fukien Tea Bonsai has small, dark green, glossy leaves with specks of white on the top side of its foliage. Expect delicate white flowers to bloom throughout the year when grown in ideal lighting conditions.
This plant is a tropical evergreen shrub so it prefers a warm and moist environment. Keep it indoors when temperatures are less than 20 degrees Celcius, and provide it with additional moisture by misting now and again.
- Plenty of bright light; however, avoid mid-day sun so you don’t dry the soil out too quickly.
- Maintain evenly moist soil. Best practice for irrigating is to water once the top soil starts to dry. Water from the top until you see runoff from the drainage holes, but do not allow it to sit in this excess water.
